An Act To Expand the Use of Ignition Interlock Devices

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 29-A MRSA §2508, sub-§1, ¶C,  as enacted by PL 2007, c. 531, §6 and affected by §10, is amended to read:

C. The license of a person with 4 or more OUI offenses may be reinstated after the expiration of the period of suspension if the person has installed for a period of 4 years an ignition interlock device approved by the Secretary of State in the motor vehicle the person operates. This paragraph applies only to 4th or subsequent offenses committed after August 31, 2008.

Sec. 2. PL 2007, c. 531, §8  is repealed.


This bill allows a person who committed a 2nd or 3rd OUI offense prior to September 1, 2008 to apply for early termination of a driver's license suspension on the condition that the person installs an ignition interlock device in the motor vehicle the person operates.
